Lemons Are A Girl's Best Friend {A Cookbook Review}

Superfood.

Chances are most of us--- unless we've been living under a rock--- have heard thois term tossed around before... but perhaps you have wondered---

What IS a SUPERFOOD?

su·per·food
ˈso͞opərˌfo͞od
noun
a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.

Superfoods include blueberries, cinnamon, avocados, kale and acai berry... to name a few. Not only are these foods great to EAT, they can also have many great benefits in your beauty routine. Today, I am excited to share a cookbook that gives a little bit of BOTH!



Lemons Are a Girl's Best Friend
 is a handy, pocket-sized guide to thirty superfoods, each with two simple recipes--one to eat and one to use as a beauty treatment, complete with notes about each food's benefits and best uses.


With 60 recipes for healthy dishes and all-natural beauty treatments, Lemons Are a Girl's Best Friendlets you have your Pomegranate Facial and eat your Halloumi, Orange, and Pomegranate Salad, too. Each of the recipes uses just a handful of all-natural, common ingredients to make deliciously clean dishes and easy treatments for healthier skin, hair, and nails. Each superfood is introduced with a list of its active compounds, which are then translated into tangible benefits--for example, the Vitamin C in the Tomato and Basil Bruschetta gives your immune system a boost, while the lycopene in the Tomato Face Mask protects your skin from free radicals and UV rays. With recipes for grocery store staples (oats, sweet potatoes, cucumbers) and buzzy superfoods (seaweed, chia seeds, cider vinegar) alike, there is something in Lemons
 for everyone!


Now, if you've been following my blog for very long, you know that I love two things--- cookbooks and homemade beauty recipes. So, a cookbook that features not only food but also homemade beauty recipes!? Yes, that certainly is right up my alley! Needless to say, I was beyond excited about this one!

And it did not disappoint! While it doesn't feature every single superfood out there, it does introduce us to thirty common ones. Each ones gives us ways not only to eat these foods, but offers other uses as well. We can incorporate these recipes into our beauty routines to get even more benefits for our skin, hair, etc. They all use simple and natural ingredients making them easy to recreate yourself! 

Whether you're looking for new recipes to incorporate superfoods into your daily diet or like me love trying new and fun beauty recipes, this book truly has it all! It is available to purchase now at your favorite book retailers.
